It doesn't sound like php is installed correctly.
Php code is normally interpreted by the web server.
Which, in turn, returns HTML code to the
web browser.

For example, the Redhat Apache file
'/etc/httpd/conf.d/php.ini' contains
the line 'AddHandler php5-script .php'
which tells the Apache web server to run
files with the '.php' extension through the php
interpreter.

Also, HTML code normally contains a header that the browser
should recognize.

i.e. 'view source' contains the document type of HTML at the top
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

If the browser recognizes the document type as html,
it shouldn't ask you to 'save to file'.

Try 'yum list installed | grep php' to see if php
is installed.

You should see something like:

> [root@vcl conf.d]# yum list installed | grep php
> php.x86_64                                 5.1.6-27.el5_5.3

I'm guessing we've got a chicken and the egg problem. How go you run
'testsetup.php' to test your php installation before you've installed
php?
